I went here as a parent volunteer with my son's 4th grade class. The staff here does a great job of conducting tours that teach kids a lot about what it was like in Denver in the 1800s. Very easy and convenient location and lots of fun for old and young.

This is a good look into the 'old' life, especially for children. Or others who haven't seen this type of preservation and historical accounts. The timeline in the visitors center was most impressive to me.

This tour was very informative about the pioneering family that built this wagon stop 4 miles outside of Denver's center back in the 1800's. The house on the grounds is considered Denver's oldest structure. The docent was very knowledgeable about the family, house, grounds, and area history. From what I understood, is that they also host school groups and have... More

Great tour guide told us all about the families who lived in the house/stage stop. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. There were horses, goats and chickens, so it was a good place to take children. They had a little store with reasonable prices.

I just visited with my son's class and had been here 2 years ago with my daughter's class .... It's even better!! It is clear that the programming staff cares a lot about improving the programming for school aged kids. In a 3.5 hour visit -- our class actually made butter, tried Bison jerky, ground real coffee beans, heard an... More

Did not know what to expect when we arrived here. But, we all really enjoyed our visit. For $5 per person, a docent will take you on a tour of the grounds and will tell you about the history of Denver and the Cherry Creek area. You’ll also be able to enter a historical home built in 1859 (not just... More

Nicely restored and maintained working "stage stop" with horses, gardens and costumed tour guides. Guided tours, and educational talks, a lovely gift shop plus schedule events. This is a wonderful reminder of Denver's rich American history. I'd say have brunch at a nearby eatery, then spend the afternoon here. Economical, educational, quaint, heart warming -- don't miss this treasure not... More

It was a great day of history. I would return for the day. The 4 th of July celebration had stagecoach rides, homemade authentic root beer, a full day of the old west.
